News from the Heart!

Kelowna Capital News had an interesting article on September 29th. It was titled, "Help Stop No.1 killer of Canadian Women. Heart disease and stroke take one in three Canadians before their time and is the No. 1 killer of Canadian Women. It goes on to site that currently, 9 in 10 Canadians have at least one risk factor, but many are not even aware, or they mistakenly believe that nothing could happen to them! During a presentation on "Strategies for Optimizing Exercise in Patients with COPD", Neil Eves, PhD, Respiratory Physiologist, presented research that COPD is the 4th leading cause of death in Canadians and kills more women then Breast Cancer. October 2nd, 2011 will be the 25th running of the Annual Run for the Cure. We know more now than ever how exercise has positive effects of all types of conditions, and yet 65% of us are overweight and 35% of us remain sedentary!! We don't need to 'get' the message. The evidence is clear. We just need to get moving!
